Briana Marela drops video for “Surrender”
Briana Marelas forthcoming release on Jagjaguwar, All Around Us, focuses on many parts of the emotional spectrum: the warmth of affection; the weightlessness of joy; the grounded, and love. There is an air of transience in her voice that adds to the ethereal nature of her music, the immediacy of her lyrics, and the feelings on which they focus. Spurred by her emotional ties to the Pacific Northwest and to the people she holds close.
Produced and recorded by Sigur Rós producer Alex Somers in Reykjavic and featuring strings by Amiina, All Around Us feels mysterious at first, but reveals itself to be a record of remarkable honesty, and of direct, deeply felt emotions.
Marela has shared a new video for Surrender. Directed by experimental filmmaker, Christin Turner, the video depicts Marela shrouded in kaleidoscopic lights and static. The video for Surrender interprets the torrent of emotions associated with falling in love as blips and signals reaching through the darkness, sparking a supernova of light, motion, and beauty, says Turner.
